This flexibility opens up endless possibilities for creating tailored and advanced prediction/trading products.

When the market resolves the winning positions received a payout while the losing positions expire worthless. To provide a comprehensive trading and hedging experience the protocol also supports leverage trading of up to 100x, allowing traders to intuitively hedge risks and adjust exposure structure on a single platform.
